Thanks for joining, Catherine! Leanne is really pretty.

Ack! I really hope we get more applicants so the contest can run.. I'd hate to have the first contest I sign up for be closed. :[
I hope we get more applicants also. The last contest I ran wasn't too successful, but I think it was because I hadn't planned it out too well. This competition is going to be great!

Welcome to Round One! The applications are still open, as we need two contestants to be able to move on in the competition.

This round is all about your invitations, outfits and entertainment! (Oh, my!)
To win this round, you must have the coolest invites, the best outfit, and the best improvisation when it comes to the entertainment. Improvisation will be judged by the Emergency Judges, because I know that being an EJ limits your connectivity with the contest.

Any no-shows will not be tolerated! If you applied and don't bother to put a reason why you didn't complete round one, please do not join further cycles of this contest.


Task One:
Create an invitation fitting your theme. Remember to be creative! You must be in it, whether it's talking about the party on a CD (congrats to those with a microphone), looking happy in a snap shot or of you playing the guitar. This is what should be submitted:


- A picture of the invitation that has a picture of your sim on it or:
- A sound MP3 of your sim talking about the party (optional) joined with an invitation

Make it awesome, guys!


Task Two:
You must decide on an outfit that is perfect for you and your party. If you want all the guests to wear white; wear red! Make sure you stand out. Take a picture of your sim posing in the boutique/store. This is what should be submitted:


- A picture of your sim in either a department store or a boutique, showing off the new outfit that fits in with them and their party perfectly! Show their joy!


Mini Task:
It seems that the entertainers have been messed up! While expecting maybe a bunch of Vegas Girls, you're slapped in the face with a bunch of dancers in medieval dress.
Or if you're expecting a rock band to show up, you get bombarded with a heap of poodles and their French owners.
Or if you're waiting for your poodles, a rock band have shown up!
Or if you're hearing a van of ukeleles, coconuts and hula dancers, you're probably waiting for your medieval dancers.
Or your Tokyo party isn't looking so Tokyo when you're surrounded by a bunch of B list Hollywood stars!

This is will be edited upon new applications!



Poodles in Paris gets the entertainment for Paint it Black!
Paint it Black gets the entertainment of Poodles in Paris!
Medieval Hollywood gets the entertainment of Beach Paradise!
Beach Paradise gets the entertainment of Royal Casino!
Royal Casino gets the entertainment of Medieval Hollywood!
Tokyo Pop gets the entertainment of On the Red Carpet!
On the Red Carpet gets the entertainment of Tokyo Pop!
Viva Las Vegas gets the entertainment of Technicolour Californication!
Technicolour Californication gets the entertainment of Viva Las Vegas!
Street Chic gets the entertainment of Blue Phantasy!
Blue Phantasy gets the entertainment of Chillin' and Rockin' Around the Pool!
Chillin' and Rockin' Around the Pool gets the entertainment of Street Chic! (xD)


What do you do in this situation? Take a picture and tell us the story!
(If you've been missed out, please point it out)

This all closes on Valentines Day. I personally don't care if you are spending the day canoodling on Vals, but please put in your entry before then and don't whine to me for an extension with the excuse of the holiday. =)

I'm sorry, I didn't even realize that there was another casino theme. That's okay though, it's not strickly a casino theme. His mother, Pepper, is the heir to a hotel/casino dynasty. So, there will be more to it. I'd hate to copy off someone else.

BTW:

Do we have to do the Mini Task, or is it just for extra points?

Hello Dudes and dudettes! My name is Alexandria Strauss but anyone who wants to keep their head calls me Alex. I'm an only child being raised by a single sell-outof a dad(we'll get to that later); The infamous Marcel Strauss. Never heard of him? Well he's a big deal in the music industry and he specializes in mass-producing bubble gum pop- blech! I live in Malibu, California and I'm planning the most raging sweet sixteen bash ever! It's gonna be called 'Techni-colour Californication'. Techi-color like that broadway show and californication like that rock song. I want awesome colors and punk madness all over the place! Daddy pays but I'll book the music. I wouldn't want Whitney Bears showing up, it would ruin my rep! I'm a rock star and I'm ready to show all of Malibu!

No prob! I had my app ready like two nights ago when things started to go haywire! I was so peeved. Anywhoo, question;how do I know what viva las vegas' entertainment is. Should I just assume show girls and go with it?
A sound mp3? How exactly does one accomplish that! Could I just have a song clip below the invite that I'd say played as the invites were opened?
Giving away my ideas here but whatev! ;)

2nd Feb 2008, 5:58 AM
Show girls and poker dealers and all that lark. If you have a microphone, you could record yourself inviting the guests to the party (using one of the multiple free softwares for recording available. Just record it and upload the song/recording to something like MediaFire (or even YouTube). But you could also have music to the invite! That's a great idea. Remember, it's completely optional.

Round 1~~~

Invitation:

When I went through the hundreds of possible invitations for my party I decided I wanted something simple and classy. I choose this pink and white organic card for my invitation because I love the environment and the invite was so me; simple but expensive! I was so happy when I saw the finished invitation! My father made me put a song on it so that when you open the envelope the music plays. Unfortunately he wont tell me which song he picked but i hope its not an icky old song!

mystery song:

Entertainment

When 1 tastelessly dressed slut showed up at my house up asking me where she was performing I was sure I was getting punked. She told me that she was supposed to be performing for a rock themed party and the label had given my address and how she was positive that the mistake was simply my fault. She then started to yell at me and how i was a nasty prep (hello! who did she think she was dealing with!) and how I had to pay her for her troubles. I just told her if she wanted her money then she should make a new song with all this woes she had acquired since thats what I heard from her screeching sound (not music, yelling is not music). Finally frustrated she left, or possibly it was the call I had made to daddy that worked...

http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p202/pearlisthegurl/sims/sweet%20sixteen/task.gif

Outfit

For my party I want all the guests to dress in pink! (even the guys!) If you're in an outfit with no pink, you cant get in. It's that simple. I must have tried on about two hundred dresses with my mom. Every one was a no! Finally I was joking and told my mom i wanted to wear a tuxedo! I tried on the smallest size in the guys department and guess what! The suit looked HOTT! My butt looked amazing and I knew it was perfect. French people are always clean and sharp and in my look I definatly pulled it off. My mom was a little hesitant but she came around (of course) I'll definately be original in this!

No, you're not allowed to put a video up. Just a music file and a photo, thank you.
I don't get what you mean by mixing up together (this is an individual competition?). Isn't it pretty simple? You have the option of either a picture OR a picture and a sound file.

quick question: do they need to decide on hair and accessories in this round too? or is it just the dress and for the mini task can we we take more then one pic?
I consider the word "outfit" to be universal; meaning that you would dress up the whole body. So yes, this means hair and accessories. Please read the requirements. One photo.

Is there still room??
Please do join, Nikki. We need one last spot filled and then we can move on in the competition.

Wouldn't we need to know how to go about this, so we don't automatically assume how it was supposed to be done, and insult the main idea? By entertainment you do mean by like bands, music, DJs, and performers?

TASK ONE

-Listen while you look-
Muzac! Cover by Alex* (http://www.entertainmenthouston.com/acts/bands/familytree/mp3/partystarted.mp3)

My dad pulled some strings and got a *few* (more like 100 or so!) discounted sidekick 3's and I used those as the invites for my party. I of course had to get them customized so I had some artist friend's of mine give 'em a little punk attitude with the color and I added the guest's names to their phones. It was pretty rockstar! The screen saver was, of course, different shots of my face. After I handed out the phones at a little pre-party I sent the text message that was techically the invite. After handing out all those free sidekicks I decided I had to step my game up so I had my sidekick decked in diamonds! Daddy's not too pleased! :eviltongu

TASK TWO
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/Alex%20Strauss/as-rd1-2.jpg
For my party I want everyone to be dressed in alot of colors. If you're in an outfit with less than two bold colors you're not getting in. It's that simple. I choose this loud pink gown as the outfit for my entrance. My dad(the one out of frame) and the stylist are having it out because of the prices but I'm his client so I get what I want. The dress is pink and huge like cotton candy and I definately had to punk it up with the accessories and you know I'm wearing combat boots under there. Stilettos-No way! I'll definately be standing out in this!

MINI TASK
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/Alex%20Strauss/as-rd1-mini.jpg
I showed up to the party location earlier to rehearse my entrance and I was shocked to see two show girls warming up to perform. Show girls! With the peacock feathers and the whole deal! No way is this gonna go down, HERE, at my party.. No no no! I called up the planner and let him have it. Checks would be cancelled if my musicians didn't get here before I had to go in! The girls could be great for some other party but not for this one, no way in hell!

*Singing not by me, I just found it online LoL!

You see TLAW, anything other than a simple picture offers an unfair advantage to those who cannot create things like movies and slideshows, so I'm sorry to say no. The mp3 combination is as far as I'm going to go as far as bonuses and creative options. Try to get as much creativity into one picture (things like additional envelopes and a folded view of the invite) can get you bonus points. Hope you understand. :)

Also, great entry so far! She looks awesome and you've done everything correctly as far as I can see. Thumbs up!

The invite took forever to finish. Even with the help of both of my party planners, I had no idea what to choose when it came to a color scheme. I really wanted to center my party theme around Elvis Presly, Tom Jones, and Cirque du Soleil. So when it came down to it, it ended up being my favorite colors; red, black, and white. Why? Well, all of my ideas for the theme have a very unique style that is all their own. That's what makes them larger than life, and I am definately larger than life!

Dress Up:

The feeling of knowing you look sharp, that's what Leo does so well. My family's personal stylist and good friend, kindly closed his clothing shop from the public just so myself and my VIP guests could spend a quiet evening searching for the perfect outfit. It was an experience I'd never forget, especially getting a chance to see my gorgeous girlfriend, Quinn, into a one of a kind dress Leo had designed upon my request. Maybe all that enjoyment got to my head, when I jumped onto higher ground, and showed off some of my beat boxing skills.

This is ludicrous, completely inexcusable! I can't believe that overpaid party planner made such a sh&#ty mistake. Waltzing through my door with this [email protected] version of Avril Lavigne! What could of possibly happened to my Show Girls!? Where is my Elvis Impersonator!? I don’t know where they are, but they are definitely a no-show for my birthday party! Oh, Why me!!!???

I hope that my mother doesn't sink too low, and asks my sister and her band to play at my party. Truly, I'd rather go without entertainment period, if it means I have to beg my c%@t of a sister to further annihilate my only sixteenth.

Task One:
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c34/chinesecinderella/rnd1invitation.jpg
I was quite happy to buy some cool invitations from the local card shop, but Mum insisted that we had to get some specially done... with me on the cover! I felt a little stupid standing in front of this fake poker table holding an empty glass and grinning a cheesy smile, but the invitations turned out pretty well. We even had a special seal in the shape of a crown (but of course) for each envelope.

Task Two:
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c34/chinesecinderella/rnd1outfit-1.jpg
I went shopping with Mum and Dad today to get my outfit for the party! We'd already figured that the colour scheme for Royal Casino would be black and gold... so I chose a bright orange that *sort* of fits in with the colours but at least made me look good with my red hair! Surprisingly it was Mum that was sat moaning about being bored while I tried on a gazillion dresses, Dad was just stood beaming away the entire time. He kept telling me I looked 'beautiful'. Cheesy Dad! Sure, I look good, but that's stretching it a bit far!

Mini Task:
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c34/chinesecinderella/rnd1mini.jpg
Mum had asked Dad to make arrangements for the entertainment to come to the house so we could discuss what sort of entertainment they would be providing on my birthday. When they were due to arrive I heard what sounded like singing coming from outside. I looked out the window and there were three people dressed in weird clothes standing in the pouring rain. One looked like she REALLY didn't want to be there. The other two were singing - loudly - to each other, shooting glances in my direction to see if they were impressing me.

They certainly impressed my friend Charlotte though! She kept asking if we were keeping the weirdly dressed people.

Since my theme was on the red carpet,my party planner and i decided to include giftbags with the invites,to give them a sense of what was to come at the actual party.The dress code was shades of black ,since it is mostly a classic colour for awards shows.

Invite

I wasn't too fond of the boring unoriginal invites my party planners were suggesting so I got my bestie to whip up something more fitting of my personality on photoshop :)
http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j96/emodawg/5a6f53e5.jpg

Outfit

I didn't like the idea of getting my dress from a department store, I didn't want my special dress to be something being produced in bulk, no I wanted a one off so I went to a dress makers in Soho, I loved how quiant and old fashioned it was, the atmosphere was so cool. I wasn't totally sure what to do with my hair though.

http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j96/emodawg/80cd5fb6.jpg

Entertainment

When 5 smartly dressed french dudes turned up asking me where they could "set up" I thought they were camp caterers or something, I know my mum wanted to sample the food so I let them get to it. It was only when I could hear classical music through my window that it dawned on me that there was something wrong... They told me how they were supposed to be performing for a french themed party and had been given my address (how you headbang to harp music I don't know...) and refused to leave (or to my horror stop playing!) till I'd paid their expenses for coming here! There was no way I, (well my dad) was gonna give them a penny because they were bad with directions so I plannedto force the to go...

http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j96/emodawg/2d34896f.jpg

I knew they wouldn't stand to get their dapper pink jackets wet so the water balloon assault began. It concerned me how some members were more concerned about their coats then their probably more expensive instruments...



thankies corrinne for letting me convert you dress! xxx

Dressing the Part: I knew right away that I didn't want stuffy, formal clothing at my sweet 16 party... but I needed make sure that I would stand out even without a fancy gown! My taste in clothing would already fit right in on the bustling streets of Japan, so I decided I needed to kick it up a notch. I skipped the clothing store, and went straight to a local designer to commission a custom outfit that would suit the theme of the party. I decided on Kawaii Gyaru clothes, got a spray-on tan, bleached and restyled my hair, and put on Ganguro-style makeup. Seeing my look come together was really fun, and I'm really pleased with how it came out. Mum-Marion took it all in stride, but to be honest I think she was a little bored with the whole process. Mummy-Eva, on the other hand, is much more femme and was able to give me valuable feedback along the way.

You're Invited!: After my makeover was complete, I posed for a photo to use on my invitation cards. After all that work, it was almost sad to take off my fun new clothes and wild makeup, but the party was weeks away. I could hardly wait for the day of the party so I could get all dressed up as a Kawaii Gyaru again!

The thing is, the competition is full of newer and not as active members, so I can only expect that there will be no-shows. However, I do not like it. However much fun this competition has been, unless some people begin showing up again, it'll have to close. I'm sorry...
